Grower: Blue Goose Farm
Store: Carrots can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month if stored properly. Cut off carrot greens, place carrots in a containers with lid and cover completely in water. Keep container in the refrigerator, changing the water ever 4-5 days.
Russian Banana Potato Fingerlings
Grower: Clarion Rive Organics
Store: Store potatoes in a cool, well ventilated place. Colder temperatures lower than 50 degrees, such as in the refrigerator, cause a potato’s starch to convert to sugar, resulting in a sweet taste and discoloration when cooked.
Old Gold, raw milk cheese
Grower: Hidden Hills Dairy
Our surprisingly sharp aged Gouda style, kept in the cave for at least 12 months. Taste for notes of browned butter and caramel.
Grower: Harmony Grove Farm
Store: Leave the heads intact and unwashed until you use them. Then, place them in the crisper drawer in your fridge with some paper towels.They’ll absorb any excess moisture, so your lettuce doesn’t spoil prematurely. Lettuce bruises easily, so be careful not to shove other foods up against it. Using a storage container is better than a bag, which can end up squished against other items.
Grower: Harmony Grove Farm
Store: Keep microgreens between damp paper towels, and make sure they are cold and covered in a resealable bag or container. Wrapped this way, they’ll last in the fridge for about a week
Grower: Kistaco Farm
Store: Store apple cider in refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Grower: Riverbend Acres
